Our next speaker, Steven Benner, will talk about “Living Systems that Manage Artificial Genetic Information Systems”.
Steven Benner founded The Westheimer Institute of Science and Technology (TWIST) and the Foundation for Applied Molecular Evolution (FFAME), after a career at Harvard, the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zürich and the University of Florida.
About Steven’s research:
The Benner laboratory is an originator of the field of “synthetic biology”, which seeks to generate, by chemical synthesis, molecules that reproduce the complex behavior of living systems, including their genetics, inheritance, and evolution.
